The National Geographic Channel Free Pet Shop is back!

Singapore’s largest dog-adoption drive, National Geographic Channel Free (NGC) Pet Shop 2013 is back!


The National Geographic Channel Free Pet Shop is happening this weekend on the4th and 5th May, from 12 noon to 6 pm at East Coast Park, Dalbergia Green.


About National Geographic Channel Free Pet Shop

The NGC Free Pet Shop is a local initiative by National Geographic Channel Singapore to inspire fans and the public in Singapore to adopt Cesar Millan’s (from the NGC television series, Leader of the Pack) lifelong mission in preventing the deaths of innocent dogs around the world.




Joining the fun this time is Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD), in addition to the four shelters who participated last year, which are Animal Lovers’ League (ALL), Gentle Paws, Noah’s Ark, and Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD). There will be 100 dogs up for adoption in addition to the numerous fringe partners to string together a community of current and potential dog owners, pet lovers and pet-care businesses. Key industry players and other animal welfare organisations such as Lost Paws, dog groomers, obedience trainers, a dog bakery, pet food companies, dog photographers and advocates will also be brought together on a united platform to educate and raise public awareness of animal welfare efforts, and at the same time foster a stronger support community across the industry.


If you’re wondering what there is to do, let’s just say you definitely can’t count the available activities with one hand. With the presence of vendors like The Barkery Singapore, Pawsitive Sensations and Doggie Style Café, you won’t be left bored, uncomfortable or hungry that’s for sure! There will be a showcase of pet products, free sampling of dog snacks and cakes, as well as complimentary massages and ear-cleaning services – for your furry friends, that is.




It’s time to pamper your best friend and shower them with some TLC!


For dog owners or generally anyone who loves dogs or are interested in them, there will be an exciting segment – the Singapore Special Dog Show, featuring a variety of local mixed breed dogs. This is the second year that this show is organised, and is the first dog show in Singapore that is exclusively open to such types of dogs. Its main purpose is to remove misconceptions that Singapore Specials are not on par with pure bred dogs, and to do so, the show will be featuring owners with their local mixed breed dogs, sharing their stories and the talents of these dogs.


The NGC Free Pet Shop will be offering dog owners the opportunity to obtain expert tips and advice from veterinarians on common health and nutrition issues in our canine friends, and attendees can seize this chance to voice all their concerns and queries.


Here are the event details:


Date: 4th and 5th May 2013, Saturday and Sunday
Time: 12 noon – 6 pm
Venue: Dalbergia Green, East Coast Park (between Carpark D1 and the beach)

To sweeten the deal, the event is free for all – bring your family and friends down to enjoy a day out, where animal lovers, dog owners and their pooches can look forward to being photographed by professional photographers and pampered with nutritional dog treats.
